Ontario Ice Caves Make NY Times List of Places to Visit
If the New York Times called you ephemeral, would you blush? This hefty compliment has just been paid to our very own Ontario Ice Caves in the New York Times’ list of 52 Places To Go In 2019. The list comprises some of the most epic travel destinations of the year from Aberdeen to Zadar.
The Ice Caves lie along the shore of Lake Superior. A tango of waves, ice, and wind results in frozen hideaways along the shore.
Imagine a 20 foot wave freezing in its tracks in the most glamorous pose possible. Then, you can start to imagine how cool the caves are. The sun, moving ice, and wind constantly reform the caves so no view is the same twice.
You can access these accolade-worthy caves via the Trans Canada Highway. Ideal spots to explore are Aloha Bay and Coppermine Point.
Take advantage of this natural beauty (no filter needed) ASAP because the caves are expected to change with the climate over the next few years. FYI, February is the ideal month to check them out so start rounding up your friends and family now.
Don’t wish away the cold weather just yet! When Lake Superior freezes solid, you’re able to access the caves by foot via the lake, making for an extra-unforgettable experience.
Also, for the inside scoop on the most Insta-worthy caves, the staff of the Stokely Creek Lodge keeps track of where the best ones are hiding.
Canada is full of gems, and the Ontario Ice Caves are in our own backyard. Go fly your Canadian pride flag high and enjoy this awesome spot!
